Literature Connectivism
George Siemens
Stephen Downes Constructivism Methodology web survey semi-structured,
face-to-face interviews Recruitment Unforseen issues Motivating factors & initial questions Document analysis Taiwan & Asia! Industry studies, 'best practice' cases New Horizons data analysis thematic analysis across all methodologies Questions I would like
to ask the e-learning 'fad' You're Gen-Y, can't you do this? relevance to personal career if the technology works, why isn't it successful? build it and they will come 'selection criteria' for interview stage survey monkey quick reference guides
user guides

other relevant material the participants offer Facebook
Word of mouth
other uni contacts access to courses change in methodology:
(document analysis introduced) What do young professionals attribute to
their successful e-learning experiences at work? VIA Learning
theory Technology,
& Design Generations
work larger than anticipated response Do YOU have any questions? Geographical
& institutional
studies How is this study unique? Very few studies currently examine the combination of workplace learning, young professionals and e-learning concurrently. Few studies outside the context of a institutionalised case study utilise the appreciative inquiry methodology, despite it's merits Sophie Carter sophiebcarter@gmail.com or scarter@komatsu.com.au Quick stats:
B arts in Organisational Learning (Hons)
University of Technology, Sydney
Organisational Development at Komatsu Australia since December 2008
Academic interests:
strategic educational developments for organisations
individual development for employees and adult learners
change Komatsu Australia Heavy machinery - construction & mining industries

roughly 1500 direct employees - large proportion trade qualified
Trades range from auto-electrician to heavy plant mechanic to boilermaker and are qualified under various packages depending on the state

piloting new apprentice development program in Hunter Valley region, NSW

WA & QLD: two larges mining areas that licence heavy plant mechanics to service electrical components on mobile plant (dump trucks)

we bother with engagement? recognising and quantifying skills gained in personal online experiences and presence
social networking
online job searches & professional networking examine the possibile benefits of blending
social and professional online experience
and presence combining the formal with the informal, online with offline over a longer period of time for all adult learners, not just young professionals. (a more strategic, longer-term professional development study in current practice and possible future directions) "So maybe I could say that I expected online training to be super efficient (and it still mostly is, especially for compliance training) but when you diliberately engage and try to make it effective, it is a lot slower than expected. FOr Gen Y people maybe this makes them feel bad bc they expect it to be super fast but discover that they are slower etc."
